Launching a New Product in a Competitive Market



  • What can we do to prepare for the launch of a new product, a few years away from approval, in a highly competitive marketplace and category, where our brand will be the fourth to market?



  • By starting the planning process early and performing CAB, we built a robust roadmap, filled with landscape trends, competitive insight, targeted audience digital search behaviors, and content analysis.

  • We used this to drive our digital strategy and website content plan. In parallel, we took the data and identified the right keywords for a robust search program and best-in-class organic ranking plan.

  • Our agencies were all armed with insights and details on what areas we can win with content, and our creative agency used it as a guide when developing the website and subsequent assets.


  • Streamlined collaboration and strategic alignment with all partners.

  • Four consecutive months of significant SEO gains upon launch, (and counting).

  • Consistent decreases in Bounce Rate and 20 percent month-over-month increases in Time On Site.
